About Daniel:
If you are looking for a friendly, happy, laid back fellow, then I’m your boy! I traveled afar from an overcrowded shelter down in Kentucky where it was unlikely I would have had a chance at adoption. I hear folks up in these parts love chocolatey looking dogs like myself, so I was lucky to get picked for a special transport. I am very friendly meeting other friendly dogs and would enjoy a home with another canine companion. I might also be ok in a home with a confident, dog savvy cat. I love going for walks and the staff says I do a pretty good job of keeping my kennel clean so I may already be housetrained. If you’d like to meet me, just ask a staff person to bring me right on out. You won’t be disappointed!
